Ben & Jerry’s Thailand outlet on the way

A Ben & Jerry’s Thailand ice-cream outlet is planned, with the company teasing the move with artwork featuring its product on a tuk-tuk.

“The wait is over!” the company has written in Thai on Facebook. “We, Ben & Jerry’s, are excited to officially come to Thailand.”

No further information is available as yet, and Coconuts Bangkok says fans can follow the news through Ben & Jerry’s Thailand Facebook site. Meanwhile, the product is available as a takeaway in some convenience stores.

Ben and Jerry’s opened their first ice-cream shop in a renovated petrol station in Burlington, Vermont, in 1978, after taking a $5 correspondence course about making ice cream and a $12,000 investment ($4000 of it borrowed).

Now the company has outlets in many countries and is owned by Anglo-Dutch corporation Unilever.
